• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

If I program talkgroups into a system that are listed as TDMA in the database but I do not know the slot number will the scanner automatially discover the slot number when the talkgroup is active? I do not see a column in the database for TDMA slot. I am talking about the TX WARN system that is mixed with standard P25 digital and some phase II TDMA talkgroups. Also is there a way to change the system type after it is already created?

It will, yes. The slot number is not static. It can change. As such it isn't pre-programmed.

Also is there a way to change the system type after it is already created?
No, but P25 Phase 1 and P25 Phase 2 systems are programmed exactly the same. There is no need to specify that the system is Phase 2 or that some TGs are TDMA.
